Many journalists still don’t acknowledge how racist trump is, or how his hateful rhetoric serves to inspire acts of deadly white supremacist terrorism, such as the recent attack in El Paso in which 20 people were killed by a gunman who expressly stated in an online manifesto that he was going after Hispanic immigrants.
So when Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke was asked a stupid question about what he thought trump could do to help the United States’ white supremacist terrorism problem, he went off.
For me, Beto had become somewhat lost in the crowd in terms of who I would most like to see win the Democratic nomination for POTUS. I’m sure he will get some criticism from the civility police, but his candor in this exchange has definitely scored him some points with me.
We once had a POTUS who was decent, caring, compassionate and empathetic. About as far away as you can possibly get from the classless, degenerate, white supremacist, stochastic terrorist garbage we currently have in our White House.
